The Program in Creative Writing offers courses at introductory and advanced levels in poetry, fiction, literary translation, and screenwriting. Every fall, the program reserves 3 of 10 sought-after spaces in each introductory workshop for first-year students.


All creative writing courses require an application, which consists of a short writing sample or statement of interest; please see the guidelines. The online application will be available for first-year students beginning August 1, 2021, with a deadline of August 18 at 11:50 p.m. (EDT).
